Building A scale for Strategic Planning and Psychological skills in Mosul University
Main Article Content
The current research aims at building a scale for the strategic planning scale in Mosul University in the center of Nineveh governorate. The researchers reviewed several literatures that deal with the subject of the strategic planning, such as the study of Dakhlallah (2012) and the study of AlUdwani (2020). In order to accomplish the objective of the research, the two researchers built the tool of the strategic planning skills (a form of the strategic planning) that involves five skills (plan formulation skill, internal analysis skill, external analysis skill, skill of executing the strategic plan and following it up and the skill of evaluating the strategic plan) through analyzing the standards of the institutional academic reliability of five countries and taking the standards in common. They include: (The Egyptian Universities 2009, Jordanian Universities 2015, Iraqi Universities 2018, Saudi Universities 2018 and Bahraini Universities 2022) as three standards were selected, which are:
1- The strategic planning.
2- The teaching staff and scientific research.
3- Society service.
The preliminary form of the items involved (65) items and the sample of the research included (120) quality liaison members and the members of the quality control for the year 2021-2022. The validity of the tool was verified by using the face validity and the invariability of the tool using the retest and conducting the distinction using the T test and so the total number of the final items was (60). The formulation of the strategic plan skills involved (12) items, the internal analysis skill included (10) items, the external analysis skill included (13) items, the skill of executing the strategic plan and following up with it involved (13) items and the evaluation skill included (12) items. The researchers built a scale that is characterized with validity, invariability and discrimination. The researchers recommend to use the tool to identify the level of the strategic planning skills at Mosul University and they suggest to conduct further studies for the purpose of comparison between Mosul University and other Iraqi and Arab universities.
